particular city in senator shumer's state. long beach. my daughter actually live there had right after college. just married a graduate program at st. john's. her husband working in queens. and they had a home which is no longer there. they moved out some years before but those coastal towns, we need to find ways to protect -- with potential rising sea levels, more serious storms hitting our continent here, we need to look at ways to mitigate that because we don't want to be back here two or three years from now saying we got to do this all over again so i look forward to hearing from our members in that regard but also the director and the secretary. . let me just say that the issue of how we go forward and how we balance all this out with b.c.a. and the caps and so forth is something we're really going to have to work through. i know the chairman suggested some options here, a lot of this is caught up in negotiations going on, the sequester and the impact, i'm anxious to hear from the second panel if this sequester is applied, what it does in terms of their ability to provide the nec
